Ephemera: "Things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time."
January is when I update my mini-album of ephemera, meaning all the paper stuff collected from the previous year, like ticket stubs and travel brochures. Here's the ingredients that make it happen.
One basket: Where stuff gets tossed and looks like this at the end of December.
One mini-album: Where I attempt to make sense of the mess above.
Six piles of stuff: Because I have six pages per year in the album.
The results: Using none of the usual scrapbooking supplies except adhesive, the pages come together quickly. Reminds me of an old-fashioned scrapbook.
I did a much longer post about ephemera and memorabilia here. But for today, the short version will do. What do you do with all the paper stuff you collect?
